Willie Nelson, Bobbie Nelson, Leon Russell at United Methodist Church, Abbott, Texas (7/2/06)


The Abbott Methodist Church is selling DVDs of Willie and Bobbie Nelson, and friends’ performance at the Church on July 2, 2006.  Willie and sister Bobbie purchased the Methodist Church Building in Abbott, Texas, where they attended church as children,. Bobbie and Willie lived with their grandparents in Abbott growing up, and Willie says, “Sister Bobbie and I have been going to this church since we were born.”

On Sunday, July 2, 2006, a church service was held, and Willie, Sister Bobbie, Mickey Raphael, Bee Spears, Leon Russell and Donald Reed, sang gospel songs in between blessings, and prayers. They sang gospel hyms, such as “I’ll Fly Away”, “Uncloudy Day”, “Will the Circle be Unbroken, and “Precious Memories.” Also, Willie sang his peace song, “Whatever Happened To Peace On Earth”, and declared us all as part of a Department of Peace.  RFDTV video taped the show, and it is now being sold as a scholarship fundraiser by the Church.  To get your copy, send a check for $11.00 payable to Abbott Methodist Church, to:
